Jay Brian Schroeder (born June 28, 1961) is a former professional American football quarterback. He played college football at UCLA, after which he was selected in the third round (83rd overall) of the 1984 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins where he played for three seasons. He then played for the Los Angeles Raiders for five seasons and spent one season each with the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals.
While with the Washington Redskins, Schroeder was selected to his only Pro Bowl after the 1986 season. He also won his only Super Bowl ring, when the Redskins won Super Bowl XXII over the Denver Broncos at the end of his final year with Washington.
Schroeder attended Palisades High School and was a high school football teammate of actor Forest Whitaker.
He was a third round draft pick in the 1984 NFL Draft by Washington after a college career at UCLA, in which he started only one game. He did produce a memorable moment, throwing a game-winning touchdown pass on a deflection to future NFL star Freeman McNeil to beat arch-rival USC.He also played minor league baseball in the Pioneer League.
Schroeder replaced injured Joe Theismann in a Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants on November 18, 1985. Schroeder's first pass after Theismann was taken off the field was a 43-yard completion to Art Monk.The Redskins came close to a touchdown after the catch, but a fumble by John Riggins inside the five yard line was recovered by Lawrence Taylor. Washington eventually won the game, 23-21.
Schroeder led the Redskins to a 4-1 record after that game. He gained the starting spot on the Redskins for the 1986 NFL season, and led them to a 12-4 record while throwing for a then team record 4,109 passing yards, a team record which stood for 29 years,but he remains the third all time leader in single season passing for Washington. He led Washington to the NFC title game where they were shut out 17-0 by the New York Giants.
The following season, Schroeder suffered a separated shoulder in the first game against the Philadelphia Eagles and was replaced by Doug Williams. Williams disliked Schroeder for pointedly waving him off the field when head coach Joe Gibbs thought Schroeder had been injured and sent Williams in as a precaution.[ citation needed ] Schroeder returned that season, but was continually nagged by the injury, allowing the more popular Williams to gain the starting position for the Redskins' playoff run.
Williams led the Redskins to a championship victory that year in Super Bowl XXII. Schroeder was traded the following season for Raiders tackle Jim Lachey, who proved to be a perennial Pro Bowl player for the Redskins. Schroeder spent five seasons with the Raiders. In 1990, he led Los Angeles to the AFC championship where the Raiders lost to the Buffalo Bills 51-3 as Schroeder threw five interceptions.
Todd Marinovich replaced him for one regular season and one playoff contest in the 1991 season, and Jeff Hostetler arrived in 1993 after Schroeder was waived.
Schroeder retired in 1995 with 1,426 of 2,808 completions for 20,063 yards and 114 touchdowns, with 108 interceptions, while also rushing for 761 yards and five touchdowns.
